The American Academy of Health Behavior invites graduate students and newly graduated post-doctoral professionals within 2-years of their post doctoral degree and not yet in a tenure-track position to participate in the annual 3-minute Thesis (3MT) competition at the AAHB Scientific Meeting.
The 3MT is an academic competition that challenges presenters to deliver compelling pre-recorded oration on their research agenda, highlighting the significance and impact of their research in no more than 180 seconds using a single slide.
How to compete
- Your abstract must be accepted for presentation at the 2023 Scientific Meeting on San Francisco, CA
- After you receive your notification of acceptance, return to this page to register your intent to compete in the 3MT.
- If entered into the competition, it is expected that you will register for and attend the conference.
- The research must be the student's or postdoc's original research (i.e., student thesis or dissertation project), or may originate from a student-led research question that stems from a faculty or mentor research project. Research that is the outcome of a faculty or mentor project without significant contribution to the study design, data collection, data analysis, and synthesis is not eligible for this competition.
- A single static PowerPoint slide is permitted. No slide transitions, animations or 'movement' of any kind are allowed. The slide will be presented from the beginning of the oration.
- No additional electronic media (e.g. sound and video files) are permitted within the PowerPoint slide.
- No additional props (e.g. costumes, musical instruments, laboratory equipment) are permitted.
- Presentations are to be spoken word (e.g., no poetry or songs).
- Presentations are limited to exactly 3 minutes and will be timed. Presentations are considered to have commenced when a presenter starts his or her presentation through either movement or speech.
